Removing frames will result in a gap in the action. Why would that look better?

Ever since film (24fps) has been transferred to Video (30fps) pulldown has been the amazingly beautiful perfect way to go about it. Mainly because of interlacing. You're really transconding 24fps to 60fps. No frame blending is necessary. Out of every 5 frames, 2 are a field mix of the surrounding frames. So the frames sort of overlap. Frame 1, frame 2, frame 3&4 mixed, frame 4&5mixed, frame 5.

Although the above does create interlaced frames, it still is would be progressive visually. It's the way every hollywood DVD or VHS has been shown on your television for quite awhile and there haven't been many complaints.
